It will be growing in a wooden shoe underneath a windmill next to the tulips :floor:

Why not in a ceylonese jungle I know? It has been dutch too, if your Sabinaria wants to hear that mother langage ....

Besides, they can meet other family members ( in fact hawaiian Sabinaria ) :mellow:

That's also a good possibility. But then I will move in together with the palm.

So all I have to do now is get my wife and children to come with me and move to the Ceylonese jungle that you have reserved for me.:D

You're welcome with your family, you know, weeds are growing so quickly in this climate, so much work to do !

And; if you let it become a real jungle, wildlife comes too; leeches, snakes, scorpions, mosquitos ….

Then: when do you arrive?

Not a before and after per se, but a before pic.   My small raphis excelsa still in its nursery pot, has opened a new leaf!   Woohoo!    This leaf was a spear that was barely 1/3 the way poking out when I bought it back in September.    Hope this one is a little faster  growing.  It's already nicely developed it's characteristic brown fibrous trunk.  It has 8 leaves and the opening spear will be it's 9th.  This new one and the two before it have 6 leaf segments.     

This is only the second one I've had.  The first one was like a decade ago and roughly the same size.   Unfortunately that one didn't make it.  Any tips on it's care other than the usual?    Cheers!

Here is the after of this one. 1 year and 3 months later nearly to the day.

Hi Pal,

what happens in another five years time if the growing speed will be the same? Will it become to big for indoors?

In autumn I'll look for fresh seeds.

As the palm is now really trunking (the diameter is over 4 cm) it means that the stem will grow much faster in hight than until now. That is one reason why I am experimenting with the other Lytos so that they won’t grow too tall too soon …… :unsure:

They are »born« in April 2013, except N°1308 which germinated in May 2013. — Yes, they will get bigger, the stem can grow up to over 3 m (without the long leaves!) what will cause some problems inside my office. :bemused: That is the reason why I trimmed N°1306c to bonsai size. :evil:

The toughest one (N°1303) is still outdoors in Balconia; the temps can fall down to near zero at 9 h on Sunday.

    • Anyone else growing Caryota Maxima(urens?) potted?
      By Mostapha
      Hi, I was just wondering if anyone else is growing this magnificent palm potted. 
      I'm reside in NYS at the foothills of the Adirondack Mts. Mine is almost 3 years old from seed. A seed that was given to me by a friend that owns a florist. It was the only seed brought to her by a customer that had brought it from California.
      Seems to do quite well for me here, just also seems to grow in spurts. Of course it grows inside during the cold months.
      I place it in the shower along with other palms to get a deep watering.  Shower only on enough to simulate a light misty rain. I have humidifiers in my house as well as banks of 96" windows, so plenty of natural light. As you can see in the included picture even on dreary days of winter. The palm was moved to take the picture.
      Also during the winter I suppliment with led strip lights, putting out 3000 to 4500 lumens per strip.
      No mites, no scale, nor any other problems. Plants are watch over very carefully and well maintained.
      Along with this Caryota, I also grow the mitis, Latania(both red and blue from seed) Triangles, Foxtails, Becarriophoenix alfredfi, as well as other palms some feel I shouldn't be able to grow. I recently gave away a coconut because it grew to large too fast. Spears we're getting to close to 14 ft ceiling. 
      Anyway, anyone else growing this palm potted would be nice to see pictures and know how it does in your areas. 
      Thanks. Mark
    • Some questions
      By Sanips
      Hi guys, I wonder if you could help me about some worries and questions I have about certain palms I own.
      First, I've a butyagrus, a JxB F2 and a Livistona nitida which their newest leaf are very yellowish. I wonder If it's normal or it's caused by some short of defficency (iron perhaps?) or overfertilizing them (I use Palm Focus once a week or every 15 days and I always give them the amount recomended (5ml per litre). I leave you some pics about them. The 3 first ones are the butyagrus, the next 3 are from my JxB F2 and the last 2 are the L. nitida.








      The second question is about my Sabal uresana. is It alright? I leave some photos. Don you think is too layed? is the soil level too low?



      Thank you guy in advance.

    • On Light, or the lack thereof
      By Funkthulhu
      As can be expected for Nebraska, nothing I have is in the ground, just pots.  (and now I'm in an apartment again, so yeah...)
      Anyway, what palm species of yours seem to do well in low-light environments?  I'm thinking specifically offices, bedrooms, etc.  No grow-lights, and maybe not even near a window.
      I've got space I can fill, but I'm afraid putting palms in some of these nooks would be a death-knell due to lack of direct window sun or at least intense light.
      Questions? Comments? Short stories?
    • Growstone Coco Mix - anyone used it?
      By tjwalters
      I bought some of this to try with some Areca novohibernica seedlings, either alone or mixed with a peat-based medium. Has anyone here tried it? It's a mix of "Growstones, Coco coir and Redwood fiber with added Mycorrhizae." The "Growstones" are approximately 1" in size and irregularly shaped.
